Dirt cheap compared to what? What ad revenue is being made when the Hawks ratings are abysmal and the only offers being made are (speculative) take it or leave it kinds?
Ok 1 - Hawks ratings aren't abysmal, as a link already shows. Last year's ratings were better than this years Sox and Cubs ratings on CSN.
2 - Sports are literally the CHEAPEST thing a TV network can produce.
3 - What offers are you talking about? I don't think you have any understanding of the sports media business. WGN couldn't wait to get a piece of the Hawks, and they own 20% of Comcast Sports Net, so they aren't 'getting offers' for that or anything.
